In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Page Pate discusses the verdict in the Tex McIver trial in Atlanta, Georgia. McIver, a former Buckhead attorney, was found guilty of felony murder in the September 2016 death of his wife. The verdict was reached on April 23, 2018, after five days of deliberations and despite the jury being deadlocked. Pate explains how this verdict “makes no sense” and how he believes the majority of the jurors did not understand the punishment for the crime of conviction. Sentencing is set for May 23, 2018.
